Route Updates (The New Look)
« on: November 06, 2012, 04:23:19 PM »
I have been looking into some site upgrades and with the help of the committee, we are able to make a realistic of subway map of all completed routes.

It will features just a regular subway map but real scale drawn lines that will show what developers are up to. I will leave a link to the different development pages also around the site that will help you to keep track of what is going on. If anyone is handy with Adobe Illustrator CS6 then you should be able to help out. I will update this thread with an example screen shot.

If your on a MAC computer, you can spread your two fingers on the mouse pad to enlarge the image.

I am still working on the Windows enlargement process.


Most of the routes listed are either only going uptown. I will label the few going downtown and add links to respective threads and developers.

I like the idea. I just hope that we don't have to go through major upgrades like last time.

All I have to say is make the lines that are actually complete a bit darker. But I like this way. Good job, Manny.

Imanuel, may I borrow a copy of this when you enlarge it? Just a blank copy with nothing filled in.

The blank copy will be available soon but until then please be patient. I am trying to make a full system wide map and edit these changes so the map can become more user friendly.

Yeah it won't work on that... Hold command and scroll up and down with two fingers. IF command doesn't work, use control.
